jesus christ and say they have joined the lord, going to go home again. to me, it's tragic. i want you to speak specifically to christianity in arkansas, in your experience. >> you know, it's one of the things that i thought was kind of grotesque when you're on death row, you have come as soon as the guy gets an execution date, that you have these ministers that swarm on them like flies. you know, they didn't give a damn about this guy for the past 10, 15 years he was on death row. all of a sudden he is about to die and they can't get enough of him. it's disgusting. but at the same time there are a lot of good people from different religions that come in and the done a lot of good. that's one of those things that there is both good and bad. but anyway it's like in the system they always keep you going forward by giving you false hope. you've always got somebody telling you whether it's a lawyer telling you sure, we're going to get this turned around in nine months. whenever they started doing the dna testing in our case, i said how long will this take? they said about six months. six m
of my youth remain? casey at the bat, captain my captain, the star-spangled banner, the lord's prayer, the cottage, the deacon's one horse -- [inaudible] the bible, the declaration of independence, the gettysburg address. those various productions of poetry universeally read 50 years ago are replace inside the brave new world by slogans and the reduction of debatable propositions to commands. celebrate diversity, for example. where once we did not exhort, but practiced the celebration of its polar opposite, unity. english literature until the late mid century was largely illusive. it assumed a common knowledge of the bible, the gospels, the constitution, the works of shakespeare and various poets of that region and time. there was that called poetry still written today, but i defy anyone here to quote one line read as recently as last week. and yet we remember for our entire lives that which moved us not by command or by appeal to the intellect, but by resonance with the soul which is as opposed to political bleeps, we all share. the one-horse shay, have you heard of the wonderful one

i know you have some accidental connections with the lord. please pray for the book this week. we gave guidance to the writers. if you had 10 minutes in front of an eighth-grade class, what would you tell them? what would you tell them about leaderships? what did you experience over the last 10 years and how can we use this book to inspire young people to do great things? all those parents and grandparents out there, this is the book of choice. for the teenager, searching, for that young person looking for direction this will inspire them. thank you for the question. >> we have time for two more. >> the thank you. i met josh as a board of trustees at the naval academy and had dinner with him in march and we discussed participation. he is one of the sponsors and the other seven better here as well toward the book. as he so eloquently said honors those whose names are engraved in memorial hall. we have sponsors have been on the conference calls and looking beyond just patriot week, and i know you and i will be working for that but could you share with others but the expectation is s
mills. the cotton lords that created holyoke on the model of lowell and lawrence devised a three-tiered canal system so that, unfortunately, it doesn't show in this map, but the canals come -- the first canal comes like this, and this comes like that, and that comes like this. so the connecticut river was able to be used over three times. now, holyoke made offers to the manufacturers in the valley, and can skinner's the only one who accepted the offer and moved. and he's the only one who survived. skinner knew he needed two things to be able to make a go of it again: he needed money, and he needed water power. in skinnerville he was going to have to rely on steam if he rebuilt there because the reservoir, which had supplemented the mill river during the dry season, was not going to be rebuilt. so going forward during those dry seasons when the river ran low, skinner was going to have to supplement his mill with steam. it was very expensive. for a man in the amount of debt he was in, it was too expensive for him at this time. he was also going to have to rebuild the entire infrast

[applause] i wanted to find out how it ended. what is your advice for someone that wants to write and be published? right, finish things. make a really good unpublishable. send them to people who may publish them. when they come back from those people with nose saying that they can publish them, send them to somebody else. someone out there is drug enough were desperate enough to publish your story and then keep writing. don't go i finished my story, i saw the story. just write the next one. i notice a lot of your stories feature very started strong-willed woman,/gross. thoughts? i think you are observant.

it is the highest degree likely that the north will not be able to subdue the south. british prime minister lord pomerance and told us for an officers. meanwhile, the lincoln government appeared overwhelmed. congress and the white house were in the hands of a political party that it never government before. the treasury department was broke. federal spending was multiplied as never before. in 1862, the u.s. government spent six times as much money as it spent in 1861. and where would it come from? northern banks, and an economic panic had closed their exchange windows in late december, refusing to redeem paper money. meanwhile, rebel soldiers menace washington from nearby manassas virginia where they had routed the union army a few months earlier. confederate artillery they atomic river above and below the n. no one in civilian authority, not even lincoln, had any detailed knowledge of the plans being prepared by the union's top general, george p. mcclellan. he was in secrecy assisted by a small clique of generals who shared his views of lincoln's policies. they were opposed. worse, mcclellan wa

udall used to use. he would say, lord, give us the wisdom to use words that are gentle and tender, for tomorrow we may have to eat them. probably a pearl of wisdom that susan rice probably thinks today she would like to have taken with her into that hearing a few months ago. a book called "the world of trouble" published in 2009 by farrar, i wrote about american presidents from eisenhower to ford and how each tried to understand the middle east and how each tried to impose a surprisingly discontinuous agenda with often tragic results. and while that book is about america's political system, "fortress israel" is a biography of israel's political culture which is an undertaking one has to take -- make with humility as an american. going back to tel aviv over several years driving up the hill to jerusalem and up and down that mediterranean landscape, i became fascinated with how the generals and the intelligence chiefs and the political figures of the ruling elite look out at the world and how strong what i call a martial impulse beats in their chest and how self-assured they are in
